tmy 400 retina film negative

like the last image i uploaded this one is also on photographic film

black white kodak tmy 400.

great film for all around photography. it is also a nice film for making 2 hour long exposures.

2:30-4:30 sunday nov 27 made with a speed graphic and ilex seminat lens ( at 3.5 ) outside was bright, the plant was backlit, with very little room light on it after 2 hours i grabbed the film and scanned it and inverted it, and tweaked the levels a bit (i made a large slow scan and the film was extremely grey from the light beam) instead of cropping the junk out of the image, i cropped the image in the film.

 

here it is:

today i made with ilford film  ( it seems  )

a retina print tinted.

 

you would think paper is so slow it would take a huge exposure for paper and none for film but this film was exposed for at least an hour.  unlike the color film or plate experiment it was not 1-4 hours …. and the results were OK but not like a super exposed image, unfortunately the sun sets early in the fall !

NEXT TIME i’ll do this in the am or early afternoon so i get more sun !

anyhow

here is the tinted ( photoshop! ) retina print

straight, untinted, unpainted cyanotypes

been making more cyanotypes lately … and have been using paper that is probably  gettng close to being dead.  it takes a long while to make exposures, and sometimes the color bleads out but that is OK, it is fun cheap and easy to make more sensitizer, something i will be doing probably in the next week or two.  i’m not quite sure what recipe i will use.  maybe i will use the 2x green : 1x ferri, maybe i will do something in between, i’m not quite sure.  here are a few from ongoing series – tools and things nearby.

i made this retina print while i was making the hatchet cyanotype.  they were both the same very long exposure.  i loaded the graflex 3a up with some hand coated paper as a negative ( 2 4×5 sheets ) ..  one didn’t make it, the one i fiddled with i was able to show the “invisible rays of light” usually talked about with the origins of photography
